The patient received the inpatient rehabilitation treatment in accordance with the program of Individual Rehabilitation created. (IRP)
The IRP included the following therapies:
Functional therapy of hands, classes
Verticalization in Balance TR
Session with VR (virtual visual reality) biofeedback device with MOVE sensors
Biodex 4 Pro session
Kinesiotherapy on the S-E-T system
Session for active and passive rehabilitation of the lower and upper extremities (THERA-vital)
Hardware Verticalization on Verticalization Platform with Estimation of Parameters of Main Systems
Electric stimulation of the mediastinal nerves ("Neurosoft")
Neuro-electromystimulation, carbon electrodes
Sessions on the development of verticalization walking
Therapeutic rhythmic transcranial and transvertibral magnetic stimulation
Household activation in the closest environment of the patient. Adaptation to staying in a sitting position
Speech therapist session, speech therapist massage, stimulation
The following surgical intervention conducted at NODUS:

The post-operative periods proceeded without complications, postoperative wounds were healed well.
|Vertikalization session with BALANCE Trainer + VR (virtual visual reality) biofeedback device with MOVE sensors|
The patient successfully completed the individual inpatient rehabilitation with the following positive results:
compensated internal hydrocephalus;
removed postrepanation defect of the skull

achieved a distinct regression of the central cortical hemisymmetry, the speech restored from total motor aphasia to the elements of motor aphasia;
increased volume of active and passive movements in the limbs;
increased muscle strength and endurance
improved coordination of movements;
